The Geological Survey of Norway (NGU)

NGU is Norway’s national geological survey. We map Norway's geology, and disseminate and present data in order to meet Society’s needs for basic geological knowledge.

NGU is an agency under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries. Our mission and activities are designed to promote added value and sustainable economic growth. NGU's headquarters are in Trondheim, and our 200 employees form a highly international work environment.

Research is an integral part of NGU's services and activity, and a prerequisite for performing geological mapping, that complies to international standards, on Norway's behalf.


Here you will find information on map services and downloadable datasets available from NGU. Marine-based information includes data from the national seabed mapping programme MAREANO as well as other projects from coastal and offshore areas.

Should you require access to any other geological data, please contact NGU directly:
